Relay aided backhaul has been proposed to meet the challenge of providing Gbps high user rate over long distance (~1 km) in millimeter Wave. Terminals are served by local APs, which are then backhauled through wireless connections to a wired hub. The problem of backhaul topology design and optimal bandwidth-power partitioning has been formulated as a constrained optimization problem. It has been shown that for a linear network deployed along the street at 28 GHz, when high joint directional gain (50 dBi) is available, 1 Gbps user rate within cell range of 1 km can be delivered using 1.5 GHz of BW (without resorting to polarization). The system rates drop precipitously when joint directional gain is reduced, or when the path loss is much more severe as modeled by the 3GPP uMi-NLOS model. (User rate of 300 Mbps is achievable with 1.5 GHz of BW with 40 dBi of joint gain.)

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
